There are thousands of LSU fans and season ticket holders that drive to BR from Houston for every home game. Including those "shitty OOC opponents".
We make that drive 6-8 times per year. And you're bithching about making it ONCE? To see a premier OOC matchup, in a recruiting hotbed, at an awesome stadium to watch games and tailgate?
No, your "crying" is not justified.
Odd. Last time I checked, the home stadium for the Louisiana State University Fighting Tigers was located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In fact, it has been here for quite a long time.
So, you see, if you wish to see that team play at home, in person, you are going to have to go to Baton Rouge and it has been that way for decades and decades.
Thus, it would seem that YOUR crying is not justified. Getting back to the actual point...
The VAST majority of LSU season ticket holders live in Louisiana, and relatively close to Baton Rouge. You know...those people that dutifully cough up their Tradition Fund "donation" and then pay regularly increasing ticket prices every year, yet which are served a steady diet of bull shite OOC games every year, while the lone quality OOC game is played elsewhere.
How does LSU forsaking a HOME game and playing Wisconsin (or any other major school) in Houston help the BR (or Louisiana) economy? Sure the Hell helps Houston's economy...but not seeing the local benefit.
As for the extra $$$$ LSU will get for playing in the game...Is LSU going to use that extra $$$ to drop the costs of season tickets for those fans that are getting fricked both out of a home game, and a quality opponent?
It is complete bull shite. Period.
